Thanks kostis, I like your work more.
Bluefalchion, thanks, well, I tried the dynamics and the action of the drawing, it was acceptable but not as much as the drawing. That is the problem of work with the inspiration from cartoonists who are so much good.

Top!
A dynamic and dramatic moment.
Everyone check the situation without interpretation.

As always top modelling.
Top crafted. The horse, cowboy or better goldhunter and the one who do not look like a nice teddybear.
That teeth !

Thank you viking!
It is the gladiator bear of Italeri ... but with improved teeth, it is the fearsome Beaver Bear of the Rocky Mountains, unfortunately extinct today. :-D :-D :-D

Very different and very nice.

Growly bear is nice but I like your trapper.

Is that an Esci Polish lancer horse you have converted?

Best wishes,

Chris

Many thanks for your comments fellows.
Chris, the figure of the cowboy only has the legs of a Soviet soldier from Revell, the rest is sculpted.
The horses are from Airfix, from the British hussars at Waterloo, but I changed the positions of the legs and the neck for both.

Hi,

You did well to salvage the Airfix horses!

Creative thinking and modelling at its best.

Best wishes,

Wonderful diorama, Carlos. Very original and a great mix of converted figures from different manufacturers. I can identify the Italeri Gladitors' bear, the ridden horse from Airfix and think that the rider could be a converted Atlantic Far West figure? Not sure about the origin of the pack horse. :drool: :drool: :drool:

My very best congratulations. :thumbup:

Santi.

I like your sculpt of the old cowboy - he is full of character!And I’m happy to learn the bear is the fearsome and oft-neglected beaver bear. He was a bit small for a Grizzly… :-D

If I can go out on a “limb” here a modeller friend of mine told me once that tree roots make the best trees, especially cedar roots. He said that the roots, in miniature, mirror the form of the tree, especially gnarly trees, which would have suited this scene very well.

First of all a little Tip, and friendly advice Carlos.
The picture you posted has two water marks where sellers have printed upon them. Sure it is OK to use them. However often is the case the picture can be found by clicking on Google to search the web and find the Pictures in question. So anyone can find pictures without printed words right across them.

Your picture was found just by tapping a finger.

I find your work fascinating, and extremely interesting! BB

Thanks for the comments fellows.

UPS! I think I made a serious mistake here. I would like to be able to delete the photo of my first message so as not to compromise the page or the pro group I can no longer do.

One thing is missing so I could say it is perfect. Ground is a bit too clean for my taste... some straws, dry leaves or so are missing. It is just an opinion, not a must (but you can still do it if you like).
